Overview

Whether you are an individual, family member, director of a corporation, or statesman responsible for international affairs, how do you make the decisions you are faced with each day?

Overview

Whether you are an individual, family member, director of a corporation, or statesman responsible for international affairs, how do you make the decisions you are faced with each day? And why do you take the actions you do? The Leap identifies a measure of insanity in the way most of us determine our course of action. Driven by a combination of ego and anxiety, we repeatedly engage in emotionally reactive protocols that have taken us down the same nightmarish path to conflict again and again. Proposing a more fruitful way to relate as a species, both individually and globally, The Leap probes a deep "knowing" that humans are inherently capable of but rarely use. When we have on occasion functioned from this higher consciousness, the effects have changed history. The Leap invites us to see our ultimate oneness by asking us to become still, then forming intentions from a profound spiritual depth. When intentions are shaped within the oneness encountered in stillness, traditional thought, argumentation, and emotional reactivity are transcended as answers to our difficulties emerge from the wisdom of our divine Inner Knower. The Leap details what this innate consciousness looks like in our everyday experiences-and how it could reshape our world. Part II of The Leap presents a series of practices intended to train us in this higher consciousness that is seeking to emerge on the planet. Here, readers are provided with a devotional foundation from which to make this leap in their lives.
